John Mighton, Winner for Playwriting, 2005 . In awarding the 2005 Siminovitch Prize to Toronto playwright John Mighton, the jury was particularly impressed by the profound combination of intellect and heart embodied in Mr. Mighton's work. "The writing represents a unique, singular and necessary worldview," the jury said. "Understated in a very positive sense, his plays are open ended and unresolved in a way that kindles and suggests possibilities. Mr. Mighton's voice possesses grace, delicacy and a gentle humanity. His line of inquiry is often shot through with a rare and fragile warmth. He also brings tremendous depth to the plays, taking complex, sophisticated ideas and making them playable in a truly theatrical manner." Mr. Mighton's plays, including Scientific Americans, Possible Worlds , A Short History of Night, Body and Soul, The Little Years , and Half Life, have been performed across Canada, as well as in Europe, Japan and the United States. He has won several national awards including the Governor General's Literary Award for Drama. In addition to playwriting, Mr. Mighton completed a Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Toronto and has lectured in Philosophy at McMaster University. He is currently an Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto and for the past seven years, has coordinated JUMP (Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigies), an innovative school program designed to tutor children who are having difficulties in math. Mr. Mighton has written an inspirational book based on his experiences with JUMP called The Myth of Ability: Nurturing Mathematical Talent in Every Child , published by House of Anansi Press.

Subtle Technologies partners with Luminato to present a conversation between scientist Lee Smolin, theatre director Marianne Weems and mathematician/playwright John Mighton.
The conversation will be moderated by mathematician and playwright John Mighton. As part of this years Luminato Festival, The Builders Association's production of Continuous City will be staged at the Isabel Bader Theatre. "CONTINUOUS CITY is a meditation on how contemporary experiences of location and dislocation stretch us to the maximum as our "networked selves" occupy multiple locations" . The conversation between Lee, Marianne and John will delve into the science and art behind our networked lives. JOHN MIGHTON John Mighton is a mathematician, author, playwright, and the founder of JUMP Math. John completed a Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Toronto and was awarded an NSERC fellowship for postdoctoral research in knot and graph theory. He is currently a Fellow of the Fields Institute for Mathematical Research and an Adjunct Professor of mathematics at the University of Toronto. John is also a playwright: his plays have been performed across Canada, Europe, Japan, and the United States. He has won several national awards including the Governor General's Literary Award for Drama, the Dora Award, the Chalmers Award and the Siminovitch Prize. As a mathematician and a playwright, John believes that there are more connections between the arts and the sciences than people generally think, and that scientists and mathematicians are often led by a sense of beauty or elegance, and describe their work in artistic terms. He has made the statement, "If the two worlds communicated more, we'd have much richer art and science as a result."

$100,000 Siminovitch Prize Awarded to Toronto Playwright, John Mighton
Siminovitch Prize in Theatre Toronto Playwright, John Mighton TORONTO - BMO Financial Group today announced that Toronto playwright John Mighton was named the 2005 recipient of the Elinore & Lou Siminovitch Prize in Theatre, Canada's largest annual theatre award. Mr. Mighton was chosen from a short list of seven finalists the jury selected from the 53 top Canadian playwrights who received nominations this year. The announcement was made during a ceremony this evening at University of Toronto's historic Hart House Theatre. According to the jury citation, "in selecting the recipient for the 2005 Siminovitch Prize in Theatre, the jury was particularly impressed by the profound combination of intellect and heart embodied in Mr. Mighton's work. His voice has grace, delicacy and a gentle humanity. Mr. Mighton also brings tremendous depth to his plays, taking complex, sophisticated ideas and making them playable in a truly theatrical manner." Mr. Mighton's plays, including Scientific Americans, Possible Worlds , A Short History of Night, Body and Soul, The Little Years , and Half Life, have been performed across Canada, as well as in Europe, Japan and the United States. He has won several national awards including the Governor General's Literary Award for Drama. "We found Mr. Mighton's work takes a new direction in Canadian theatre, not by formal experimentation, but by its constantly probing nature, keeping it on the edge. This playwright is a very gifted writer, whose voice we celebrate with the Siminovitch Prize in Theatre." In addition to playwriting, Mr. Mighton completed a Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Toronto and has lectured in Philosophy at McMaster University. He is currently an Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto and, for the past seven years, has coordinated JUMP (Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigies), an innovative school program designed to tutor children who are having difficulties in math. Mr. Mighton has written an inspirational book based on his experiences with JUMP called The Myth of Ability: Nurturing Mathematical Talent in Every Child , published by House of Anansi Press. "When you work with children, you immediately know if you are connecting with them and doing some good. With theatre, it is difficult to gauge the impact. In fact, there is very little certainty that you're not wasting your time as a playwright," said Mr. Mighton. "On behalf of BMO Financial Group, a long-time supporter of the arts in Canada, I am thrilled to congratulate Mr. Mighton on this outstanding achievement. The remarkable work he has done in the community with children and mathematics is truly commendable and it is fascinating to see how this work informs the way he structures very complex ideas into completely accessible plays. Mr. Mighton personifies the convergence of arts and sciences, which is at the heart of the Siminovitch Prize."
